How many people start this program but fail to finish?
I was reading a post on a different site regarding the percentage of people who start C25K to how many actually finish it and continue running. It was something like 10% if I remember correctly. Motivation is a big key in maintaining any program, and everyone who starts is motivated by something. For me, it is better health, and changing up my workout routine. I am already walking and bicycling (road cycling) and adding running to the mix would help with those days when I want to get out and do something but time is a concern. 30 minutes of running will burn more calories (at least I assume it will) than, say, an hour of walking. And as the weather changes, there will be fewer days where getting outside is going to be possible, due to snow, freezing rain, wind, etc, and the gym will be the best option. So, if you have completed the program and are still running, or if you are a C25K coach, I would love to hear your responses and ideas. Thanks much!
